Raw

I want to drink the water from the ocean
Scald my skin with boiling water
Scrape my neck, my back, my fingers, my arms,
my legs, my stomach, my thighs
with the roughest of the roughest stone I could ever find.
I want to scrub every corner of my dirty little soul
Until all his sins are gone.

        May I reblog this? However, please know that my site is not hosted at WP. So, I would have to manually copy and paste, and then link to your blog. Is that ok? 🙂

    Really good poem! I understand…. aside from the artistic opinion; as a Believer (and not in Justin Bieber… lol) I think we are clean. Have a nice day!

    I don’t quite know how I feel right now…. So many mixed thoughts are hitting at once… first of all… this was sadistically satisfying for some reason…. and secondly….. I’m loving the after effect of this piece…. Thanks and Many smiles to you… 🙂
